    Description

      We recently had a thread on the DeltaSpike list about using StereoTypes in real world applications: http://markmail.org/thread/ntqwnsyukjvdwspm

      ------
      Imagine the following Stereotype for my Services (I spare out the standard
      stuff)

      @StereoType @Secured @Transactional @ApplicationScoped
      public @interface @Service {}

      The problem here is that there is no way to 'propagate' any rolesAllowed from
      @Service to @Secured, etc.

      What I'd like to have is something like ...

      public @interface @Service {
      String[] rolesAllowed();
      TransactionAttributeType transactionType();
      }

      where the rolesAllowed() would get propagated to the @Secured meta-annotation
      and transactionType() to the @Transactional
      -----------

      Gerhard Petracek now pointed me to a cool feature which is used in JSR-303 BVAL: @OverridesAttribute
      http://docs.oracle.com/javaee/6/api/javax/validation/OverridesAttribute.html

      We should ping the BVAL EG for the details. There are quite a few little tricks and side effects to consider.

      On the implementation side, we could e.g. pick the @StereoType annotation and automatically propagate those values to the AnnotatedType which get's passed to the Extensions
